What are Esports?

Esports, or electronic sports, are video-gaming competitions, often streamed live on virtual platforms. In the late 2010s, esports grew to become a global phenomenon boasting thousands of players and millions of fans, with live-streamed tournaments often held in large arenas and broadcast simultaneously on television. High-intensity, visually appealing games that pose complex tactical challenges contribute to the rising popularity of esports as a mainstream form of entertainment.
